Hike, Bike & Run Minimize
Miles of shoreline, pristine woods, wide sidewalks, clear skies, and up north breezes make this the place to walk, bike, or run. We have many marked trails and a cross hatch of streets with sidewalks suitable for your outdoor vacation.

To view and download our trail maps, click on the following Brochures, Guides & Maps link.

Historic Pathway

A leisurely stroll down Mackinaw’s sidewalks is punctuated with historic markers that tell the long and interesting story of Mackinaw. Take a few moments to read these signs and learn our story. You can also call in to the audio stations and learn even more, get current information, and if you desire, leave a feedback message.

If you are after a leisure bike ride print a copy of our Hike and Bike Map and ride around town or through the countryside for a leisurely look at the water and woods of northern Michigan.  Click on the link above.

   

Rails to Trails

http://www.a1trails.com/rail/trailsmi.html
As the terminus of two rails-to-trails Mackinaw’s new trailhead is destined to get a lot of use. The trailhead will feature parking, bathrooms, and a picnic area. The trailhead is expected to be completed in summer 2011. Both trails have been paved inside the village limits and offer fantastic walks, runs, and rides through our beautiful woods. Take the Mackinaw to Petoskey route for 1 mile and arrive at the Wind Turbine Park where there are displays and a picnic area.

   
   

North Country Trail

http://www.northcountrytrail.org/hrb/Home.html
This national trail, from New York state to North Dakota runs right through Mackinaw City. While it is a fantastic hike across the country, smaller segments make terrific day hikes. The local chapters often have people who will help spot your car so plan ahead and contact the web sites. The trail is great for hiking and running but because of sensitive sand dunes the trail is not open to bicycling in this region.

   

Biking

Biking is big in Mackinaw and many state-wide, long-distance bike rides come to Mackinaw City. If you are interested in such a ride you might visit these organizations web sites to see where and when their tours are going this year.
